Hand and foot combo gets Chris gaming again

Chris’s stroke has affected the use of his right hand, so playing his PS4 is a real challenge. But here’s the careful setup worked out by Frankie and Joe that’s got him right back into some serious gaming action.

He’s using a foot-controlled joystick for the right stick, and a configurable controller with his left hand. The face buttons are swapped with the d-pad, and the R1 and R2 buttons are on the back of the left hand grip. The team also put together a Titan Two script so he can even use the setup on his Nintendo Switch!

By angling the controller on a wedge and fixing it to a foam-bean lap tray, Chris can now play comfortably for as long as he likes. Which, judging by his love of Dark Souls, Red Dead Redemption 2 and Monster Hunter World, is going to be quite a while. Enjoy, Chris!
